“All of us are part of a big story. It is a story that is much bigger than we know. Do not confuse the life you live with the story. Do not be afraid to leave the story. You may get scared sometimes because you fail to understand that what is scared is not you. It's the story. The story looks for a way to travel. The story is afraid you will let go.”
Frederick Reiken

“In a world that was created by God's words, words are not symbols. They are things. You call a demon, you make a demon. You curse at God and you risk dying.”
Frederick Reiken, Day for Night

“We loved our father for the poet he'd become.”
Frederick Reiken, The Odd Sea
